The Bellwood Lions Club sponsored local schools in submitting individual student entries in the annual International Lions Club Peace Poster Contest. We saw a terrific response and sent our club winner to the international level for competition. We didn't win, but the experience was rewarding for participants and our club. Better luck next year!
